American Dreamers


Opening 31 March 2018 at 16.00 

Livingstone gallery presents a group show of American artists who, each in their own right, make us part of the American Dream. These days this utopian vision seems more under pressure than ever. With a worldly view and a social conscience artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Sol LeWitt visualize the notion that this dream should be accessible to everyone. By shipping an entire condemned Detroit house appropriately called The White House to the Art Rotterdam art fair in 2016, Ryan Mendoza showed us that for many the American dream turned into a nightmare. With his Tiger Paintings and his series on The Berlin Wall Kevin Berlin shows us that a social conscience has survived in the artworld. Actually, art seems the only way for the American Dream to survive. Louse Bourgeois said it best: “Art is a guaranty of sanity.”
